There are days that I am out of words. Not in a negative way – just days that I want to spend in my atelier, on my own, without talking much. Days to spend in silence, to evaluate the passed week, to play with paint and markers, to keep the balance.
Today is such a day, so this blogpost has little words – but some more art instead. Enjoy!
|Het wolkendek breekt
na een lange regendag
een glimp van lente
|The cloud cover breaks
after a long, rainy day
a small glimps of Spring
The photo was taken by my friend Lena Schreijenberg
I submit this haiku to Recuerda Mi Corazon where our lovely hostess Rebecca brings us all together to share a haiku on Friday: Haiku my Heart.
It’s been a while since I created an ‘old fashioned’ scrapbook layout but a week ago, I found two scrapbooking challenges online that I combined and I had fun playing with an old photo.
First challenge was this Dutch Dares February sketch
The second challenge came from Challenge YOUrself:
This month, we would like you to create a layout showing us how you are inspired by the song “Hero” by Mariah Carey. (…) as always, please remember to include a photo with YOU on your layout.
I found this old photo taken in 1966. That’s me as a three-year old, pushing the pram in which my little brother lies and I found it fitting for this ‘hero’ challenge. I did, however, used lyrics from another song as a title, that I found more fitting.

And some art journal spreads that I created in the passed weeks
The Chronicles of Marit 2020 – Week 5
I received a postcard in week 5 that I wanted to preserve, so I taped an extra piece of paper to my page. Here’s the spread with the piece/card fold out.
And one more week spread…
The Chronicles of Marit 2020 – Week 6
And now, I will put some paint on my pallette and go wild.
I wish you a lovely day, go do something that makes you happy.
